Cooltrax adds next-gen Temp Tracker

Aug. 5, 2020
New low-cost solution for cold chain fleet management offers real-time alerts for multi-zone trailers

Cooltrax, a global provider of industrial IoT solutions for cold chain fleet management, recently introduced what it says is a flexible, low-cost solution for remote temperature monitoring.

Budget-conscious fleets with cold chain operations can deploy the new Temp Tracker micro wireless sensors from Cooltrax in trailers or fixed storage locations to proactively manage food safety compliance, customer service and improve bottom-line performance.

“Temp Tracker is a cost-saving alternative to traditional, hardware heavy trailer telematics,” said Mike Sharpe, president of Cooltrax North America. “Additionally, warehouses can deploy the sensors to monitor all types of temperature-controlled climates.”

Cooltrax offers a complete refrigerated trailer asset and cargo management platform, Cooltrax Fresh InTransit, with the full functionality of real-time temperature controls and tracing of cargo conditions down to the product level.

“Many of our shipper and fleet customers who already use Cooltrax Fresh InTransit are finding beneficial use cases for Temp Tracker for rental trailers or assets that are being used for temporary storage,” Sharpe added.

Next-generation Temp Tracker sensors have a 10-year battery life and install within minutes to monitor return air temperatures in single or multiple trailer zones and compartments, the company said. When multiple sensors are used, the data synchronously transmits to the cloud-based Temp Tracker platform through a local gateway connected to 4G cellular networks.

The Cooltrax web portal for Temp Tracker has a variety of automated temperature reporting tools and data visualizations that include satellite map imagery. Instant email or SMS text message alerts are sent if configurable temperature values fall out-of-range.

The micro sensors continuously track temperatures and report updates every 15 minutes. With embedded motion detection and geofencing technologies, the sensors can automatically record trip start/stop and arrival times and report the temperature record during transit for a seamless cold chain proof-of-delivery process.
